PHOTO PROMPT –© Dawn Q. Landau
Here is my post for Friday Fictioneers, where every week we write 100-word stories in response to a photo prompt. For more stories, click the frog.
Slowly, carefully, Bob lifts his head over the rise, silently taking in the landscape, making a quick survey of the five combatants. The tall one with the red hair. That’s the weakest link.
Rising up on his haunches, Bob makes his move, sweeping around to redhead’s plate. And he’s done it! A generous slab of meat.
“How on earth does he do that?”
“Man he’s fast.”
The meat is (unfortunately) cooked, but still good. Content for now, Bob returns to home base, snuggling down on his doggy blanket while he prepares for his next offensive: Operation Get-Dessert.

Bob wouldn’t survive in my house too long. I like my food too much. LOL
Aw… Poor Bob. Thanks for stopping by Irene! 🙂
This dog is a planner. I give him loads of credit for that. I wonder what will be for desert. A biscuit maybe. Nice, Anne.
I like his style. He’s a good strategist. Fun story and a very appealing dog.
Thanks Margaret! This is based on dogs I’ve actually known – who I’m pretty sure really are thinking that way. Because they are that good.
Fun story! Clever Bob. The redhead may be the weakest link, but I hope he targets someone else for dessert or they will be going very hungry this mealtime 🙂
Thanks! Agreed, that the redhead may have to develop some survival skills or be in trouble
It took me a moment to realise it was the dog. Nice story!
I believe you’ve captured the mind of a dog. Sit. Stay. Good story. 😀
I like a dog that makes a plan. Good one.
Woof Woof Woof !!!
Dear Anne, Tagibay took my line – but I do speak another language and dialect: “Arf, Arf, Arf,” Great story! Smart doggie!
